I am working on posting something worth my time of writing and your time of reading...but until then, I'm stealing something from my sister-in-laws blog. She always has something meaningful to say.

So, first let me preface this by sharing that I am a part of LCC's biggest looser, and I'm doing quite well actually. Well, that was until I began making baked goods for the Guatemala sale. How easily I turned into my old ways. The book that we are using for LCC Biggest Looser is the spiritual secrets of weight loss. In this book we are reminded that we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, therefore, we have self control! Among many other things. With this in mind, here is Val's post.

the LORD will act in our behalf. Nothing can hinder the LORD from saving, whether by many or by few 1 Samuel 14:6

I went back to read
the whole story. Jonathan is given the victory because he watched for the signs from God....but more importantly he believed in God's power.
Trials are always...well....a trial. But there comes a moment right before we head over to the enemy's camp that we have to decide who's power we are going to have more confidence in. Am I more confident in the power of my God? Or do I put more stock into the power of my enemies?
Even if it's 2 against 20....I know that the Lord will act on our behalf.

So, for me, peanut butter cookies, turtle bars, fudge, and cake batter where the enemy. I let my armor down and now I have to try to get on track. But my God is a BIG God, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do.

whos power is in the Lord

It's nice to see you here again! I appreciate what you had to say today. That table was tempting, and I'm sure that it was even worse, warm from the oven.
